Music Playlist

There is something to be said about visiting a new friend and then looking over their albums. Ha! In the days when we had albums. 

An album collection was almost decoration, it was out and it was available. It invited inspection. You could learn a lot about a person from the music that was important to them.  

Well, it was a start at least.

Today it is much more intrusive to ask to see someone’s playlist. I noticed that it is not so easy to get a simple line by line printout. From what I gather playlists are too private to be shared.  

My playlists have changed over the years. I will always include the classics that I grew up with. They are etched in my soul, I can almost sense the order of the songs on the album.

I have added other songs now, some flashbacks to the past, some barely known to only a few. The list below is not conclusion and there are many others left out. This is just my current top forty.
